Well here it is, Monday yet again. I hope you had a great/restful/fun weekend.
Today I’ve got Nails inc Paint Can Good as Gold for you. Now this is my first time actually trying one of these newfangled paint can thingies, and lemmie tell you, it wasn’t as clear-cut as I hoped it would be.
In case you aren’t aware of what this is, it’s nail polish in a small spray-paint can. Yep. The idea is you paint their base coat on. Then spray the nail polish onto your nails, not worrying about the overspray which gets onto your hands because it then (ideally) washes off. Once the paint dries, you use their top coat (same as base coat), wait for it to dry, then wash your hands with warm soapy water. And voila, a perfect mani! Except that’s not at all how it worked for me.
First of all I suggest you do this outside because it does make a mess and can be quite smelly. I applied their base coat and let it dry as they suggest. Then I sprayed the color on. It took quite a few tries to get the entire nail, the edges were being tricky, which then I think added too much polish on my nails. I waited a few minutes for it to dry.
After it dried I added their top coat and waited for that to dry. Then I washed my hands. Over and over and over. Four times in all and this (above) is what remained on my hands after washing four times with warm water and soap! As you can very clearly tell, it does not wash off easily and in fact a lot of what came off I had to kind of scrape off with a nail. At this point I was so annoyed that I didn’t even bother removing the excess on the skin with nail polish remover to try and get a decent looking mani. No way would I ever do that in real life, that’s way too much trouble.
So all-in-all this didn’t work as they said it would and it was much more messy than just regular painting would be. I think I will stick with the old-fashioned way. 😉
If you are interested in trying this out for yourself this is a limited edition shade and you can find it here and it’s $12.00 for 1.3 oz.
Ok I need to know what you think about this concept? Yes or no?
